The 76084 Locomotive Company Limited was formed September 1997 after the purchase of the locomotive by a small group of enthusiasts who saw her potential. The main objective of the Company was to restore the locomotive and tender. The issue of shares, at the time, was a novel way of raising funds to restore a steam locomotive. When 76084 returned to traffic on the North Norfolk Railway (NNR) in July 2013 over £750,000 had been spent on her restoration. This is thanks to the contribution of approximately 200 shareholders scattered around the UK and overseas. The NNR became partners to the restoration when they injected cash into the final stages thus ensuring a speedy completion. An agreement was reached for the engine to begin a new life at the NNR.
Although 76084 is a relatively small engine as a Class 4, she is strong and economical; a pocket rocket!
The engine is available, subject to availability, for mainline hire and to other preserved railways. For details and enquiries please contact our Registered Office or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
